Major props to writing day workshops. Not only am I going to leap into building a platform, but I'm learning to do it with a sick kid who is saying, "I'll die if you don't let me eat." More puking commences. #MNWW #Writer #toldtherewouldbecookies

“If I’m going on a date, I need to know who.” Listening to agents critique people’s 1st page is amazing. So many brave authors and agents. #mnww #writerslife

Oh my goodness #MNWW was so good! I met and networked with some awesome writers and agents, and all my pitches ended with submission requests which is 😍
My first con could not have gone better!

Still feeling inspired from #MNWW. My self imposed month off to let the manuscript settle ends today. The event was just what I needed to push me through the overwhelm I can feel creeping up my back when I think about #editing. #amwriting

Dear fellow #writers I can’t recommend @writingdaywksp events enough. I had a great time at #MNWW meeting people, learning, and chatting with agents. Do yourself a favor and check out their workshops!

Attended Minnesota Writers Workshop in St. Paul on Saturday #mnww. For a writer, it was like drinking from a firehose. Excellent presentations and people. Introduction to the whole world of writing. One downer–no free coffee!

Today my heart is full. Four extraordinary agents got to hear my passion for Cass, Niall, Sera, and Des. I cannot wait to send the pages where they reside. #mnww

I just got back from the Minnesota Writing Workshop, and it was amazing! Loved getting an overview of publishing, learning about query letters, listening to others' first pages, and meeting so many helpful, intelligent industry folks! This was my first, but not my last! #mnww pic.twitter.com/vl3Miw9Hmj

Didn’t want the good feels from #MNWW to end, so I binged episodes of @printrunpodcast all five hours from St. Paul to Iowa City. So, so good.
